My AMG was treated to a very high end photo session. These are my cell phone pics without the coordinated lighting firing for the Phase One camera shots. The real pics are about 500MB each. Won't be posting those. If I could.

Beautiful :love:

I've always wanted to have big posters in the garage of cars I've owned before. I've done shoot with 2 cars so far, not the W126 yet. Here are some of my pics (W220, W204):

You've got a really special car :) What's the decal on the rear drivers window? Thanks for sharing

Very nice, is that Anthresite grey? I think the decal on the rear left window is of a race track but I can't remember which. Thanks for sharing

Looks fabulous!

I wish I'd done that with one of my cars, now departed after over thirty years of ownership.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, DB172 Anthracite Grey (100% original) paint. Track outline on the left rear window is Road Atlanta, and, yes, I tracked the SEL for a weekend HPDE with the Porsche crowd a couple years ago.

Couple more cell phone pics. The booth lighting is very flattering to a car! I want this lighting in my garage. The bottom pic is just after I drove the car into the booth and centered it on the special floor/curved wall area. I had not yet jacked up the car to set the wheels and AMG center caps straight or cleaned the floor of tire track marks. There is an awful lot of prep and work done to a booth just to get ready to take pics. Very interesting process and impressed with the high end camera/lighting equipment that was used. Two cars were shot that day - Jono's 1 of 1 Hammer Wagon and my car. Total time in the booth about 12 hours - more than half spent setting up the lighting and equipment, cleaning the floors, setting the wheels, final dusting of the cars, before any pics were taken.
